Massive Natural Gas Exolosion Kills 5 and Injures More in Middletown

Posted by James Aspell | Feb 07, 2010 | 0 Comments

In what will likely prove to be Connecticut's largest single worker's compensation incident in years, the Associated Press is reporting that at least 5 workers were killed today and 12 more were injured when a Kleen Energy plant they were constructing in Middletown, Connecticut erupted in a natural gas fueled fireball. The photos I have scene from the scene depict the building ---which was under consruction but reportedly 95% complete--- with both of its' sides blown out. Homes across the Connecticut River in Portland suffered cracks in their walls and buckled doors as testimony to the force of the explosion. In a case such as this, I am certain the members of the Connecticut Worker's Compensation bar will rally together to aid in bringing justice to the families of those killed and care to those who have been injured. Our prayers go out to all involved.
